2014 Volkswagen Touareg Owners Manual – Though ballyhooed as a car for everyman, Volkswagen’s 2014 Touareg midsize crossover definitely is not valued like this. However, this 5-person folks hauler does pack a lot of substantial-conclusion look treats and being comforts on its handsome frame.
totes a reputable 64 cubic feet of cargo area (with the rear seatbacks folded away) and includes an option of 3 capable powerplants: a gasoline-burning up V6, a turbodiesel V6 or a supercharged V6 hybrid engine. Meantime, all the numerous iterations of the 2014 Touareg continue to be shipped with normal full-time all-wheel travel (AWD).
With the inclusion of the R-Series trims for 2014, this elegant crossover now features 5 versions of able conveyance, the base Sport, the filled-up Lux, the sporty R-Series, the flagship Exec and the relatively pointless Hybrid.
